due to improper installation. If you are unsure of
your ability to safely connect electric power to the
unit, consult a licensed and insured professional
to perform all electrical work.
Once you have your unit installed, we suggest
you keep this manual in a safe place for future
reference. Should any problems occur, refer to the
“Troubleshooting” section of this manual. This
information will help you quickly identify a problem
and get it remedied. In the event you require
assistance, please contact the dealer where you
purchased your unit.

children may not easily climb inside.
WARNING
• Never attempt to repair or perform
maintenance on the unit until the electricity
has been disconnected.
• Altering, cutting of power cord, removal of
power cord, removal of power plug, or direct
wiring can cause serious injury, fire and/or
loss of property and/or life and will void the
warranty.

CAUTION
• Use care when moving the unit. Some edges
are sharp and may cause personal injury.
Wear gloves when moving or repositioning
the unit.
• Never install the unit behind closed doors.
Be sure front grille is free of obstruction.
Obstructing free air flow can cause the unit
to malfunction, and may void the warranty.

hours before use.

parts. Imitation parts can damage the unit
and may void the warranty.
Installation
Installing the Wine Cooler
Your Electrolux wine cooler has been designed for either free-standing or built-in installation. When builtin, your wine cooler does not require additional air space for top, sides or rear. In either case, the front
grille must NOT be obstructed.
NOTE
To ease unit installation and removal, it is recommended that the cabinet rough opening dimensions be
increased by at least ¼ inch over the dimensions given for your unit.
NOTE
All units require zero clearance when installed flush with a cabinet or wall. Electrolux ICON Designer
stainless steel models require a minimum 2 1/16 inch handle clearance when installed against a wall or
cabinet that extends beyond the front edge of the unit.

Site Preparation
1 Position the unit on a flat, level surface
capable of supporting the entire weight of the
unit. Remember the unit will be significantly
heavier once it is fully loaded.
2 This unit requires a grounded and polarized
115 VAC, 60Hz, 15A circuit (normal
household current).
3 Avoid connecting the unit to a Ground
Fault Interruptor (GFI). GFIs are prone to
nuisance tripping which will cause the unit to
shut down. GFIs are generally not used on
circuits which power equipment that must run
unattended for long periods of time.
4 The unit must be installed according to your
local codes and ordinances.
WARNING

Electrical Grounding Required. This appliance
is equipped with a three prong (grounding)
polarized plug for your protection against
possible shock hazards.
• NEVER remove the round grounding prong
from the plug.
• NEVER use a two-prong grounding adapter.
• NEVER use an extension cord to connect
power to the unit.
Where a two-prong wall receptacle is
encountered or a longer power cord is
required, contact a qualified electrician to
have it replaced in accordance with applicable
electrical codes.
5 Position the unit to allow free air flow through
the front grille.
6 Wipe out inside of unit with a damp cloth.
7 Be sure to install the Anti-Tip bracket. Follow
the instructions provided with the Anti-Tip
bracket kit.

before it is used. Double stacking units may
cause serious personal injury.

minutes, at which point the lights may be
manually activated again if desired.

If the door has been left open for five (5) minutes,
an audible alarm will sound and the door ajar
indicator will illuminate on the right side of the
display. The mute sounds indicator will blink.
Pressing the mute sounds key or closing the
door will acknowledge the alarm and disable the
audible portion and the LED indicator until the

power-up, an audible alarm will sound and the
power fail indicator on the right side of the
display will blink. The mute sounds indicator will blink. Pressing the mute sounds
key will acknowledge the alarm and disable
the audible portion. All other functions are
disabled until the alarm is acknowledged,
at which point the power fail indicator is
turned off and the unit will resume normal
operation.

religious holidays observed within the Orthodox Jewish community.
Sabbath mode is enabled and disabled by pressing and holding the vacation mode key for five
(5) seconds. Temperature display shows “Sb” while in Sabbath mode.
The customer may open or close the door at any time without concern of directly turning on or
off any lights, digital readouts, solenoids, fans, valves, compressor, icons, tones or alarms. After
power failure, the unit will immediately return to Sabbath mode.
While in Sabbath mode, alarm indicators will not illuminate, nor be accompanied by audible alarms.
For further assistance, guidelines for proper usage and a complete list of models with the Sabbath
feature, please visit the web at http:\\www.star-k.org.
Storage
Proper Storage
The wine cooler will accommodate 48 bottles (750
ml size). There are five (5) upper racks that will
hold eight (8) bottles each and two lower racks that
will hold four (4) bottles each. Specially designed
wine racks allow for proper horizontal storage of the
wine. The cork remains moist which keeps air from
entering the bottle.
Stocking Recommendations
The wine racks allow for the proper horizontal storage of wine. The bottles are properly positioned so
that the wine remains in contact with the cork to
assure that the cork does not become dry. Use the
procedure listed below to stock your wine cooler.
White and sparkling wines should be maintained on
the bottom to middle racks and red wine on the top
racks.
Your wine cooler should be stocked beginning with
the bottom rack at the back and working forward
staggering the bottles.
Subsequent racks should be stocked similarly,
starting with the back of each rack.

Maintenance
Maintaining Your Wine Cooler
Interior Cleaning - as Required
Periodic cleaning and proper maintenance will
ensure efficiency, top performance, and long
life. The maintenance intervals listed are based
on normal conditions. You may want to shorten
the intervals if you have pets or other special
considerations.
1 Disconnect power to the wine cooler.
Exterior Cleaning for Your Stainless
Steel Model
5 Reconnect power to the unit.
• Your stainless steel model may discolor when
exposed to chlorine gas, pool chemicals, salt
water, or cleaners with bleach.
• Keep your stainless unit looking new by
cleaning with a high quality, all-in-one
stainless steel cleaner/polish on a monthly
basis. Frequent cleaning will remove surface
contamination that could lead to rust. Some
installations will require cleaning on a weekly
basis.
• DO NOT CLEAN WITH STEEL WOOL PADS.
2 Remove racks if desired, see “WINE RACK
REMOVAL/INSTALLATION” below.
3 Wipe down the interior with a solution of nonabrasive mild detergent and warm water.
4 Rinse with clear water.
Wine Rack Removal/Installation
1 Open door fully.
2 Extend wine rack fully.
3 Ball bearing slide features plastic release
latches on each side. Push release latches,
then pull wine rack out.
4 To reinstall, push ball bearing slides in fully.
Slide rack into ball bearing slide ensuring
each side engages properly.
• DO NOT USE CLEANERS THAT ARE
NOT SPECIFICALLY INTENDED FOR
STAINLESS STEEL (this includes glass, tile
and counter cleansers).
• If any surface discolors or rusting appears,
clean it quickly with Bon-Ami or Barkeepers
Friend Cleanser and a non-abrasive cloth.
Always clean in the direction of the grain.
Always finish this process with a high quality,
all-in-one stainless steel cleaner/polish to
prevent further problems.
• USE OF ABRASIVE PADS SUCH AS
SCOTCHBRITE WILL CAUSE THE
GRAINING IN THE STAINLESS TO
BECOME BLURRED.
• Rust that is allowed to linger can penetrate
into the surface of the stainless steel and
become impossible to remove.
CAUTION
• Stainless steel models exposed to
chlorine gas and moisture such as areas
with spas or swimming pools, may have
some discoloration of the stainless steel.
Discoloration from chlorine gas is normal.
Follow exterior cleaning instructions.
• NEVER USE CHLORIDE OR CLEANERS
CONTAINING BLEACH TO CLEAN
STAINLESS STEEL.
Air Filter
Static Air Filter found in literature pack. Install in
proper housing.
